Mug cozies

My cute little mug cozies.
I like to crochet and I love to show my appreciation to my niece's child care providers. What better way to combine these two hobbies than to crochet a little gift for them! I bought the black mugs from the Dollar Tree and then crocheted the mug holders using this pattern.
I altered the pattern slightly because the mugs I'm using are a little taller than the one she used. I started off chaining 11 (instead of 8) and then finished the pattern as it was written. That just made the width of the mug holder a little bit wider. I used I Love this Yarn from Hobby Lobby. It is soft and there are lots of color choices. I happen to have a TON of buttons on hand so I found a couple I liked and sewed them on. Then, I filled them with chocolates and a gift card to a local coffee shop. Aren't they adorable?!
